I’d been photographing Taylor Camp for several months when I met Diane Elizabeth on the trail one Saturday morning as I walked into camp. She had seen some of the prints I’d made of the other campers, wanted to be photographed and invited me up to the treehouse she shared with her boyfriend, Richie Palumbo.

Diane was a willing and adaptable subject—relaxed and natural in front of a camera. Richie was more guarded and reserved.  I set up the tripod and used a Nikor PC lens to control perspective, overexposing and under developing to capture the interior shadows and exterior highlights.  He got up and left the house after only one exposure, but that one shot tells a story and became one of the iconic images of Taylor Camp and was featured on the May 2018 cover of The Sun magazine.

Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
